9:34pm
down an oklahoma city the temperature hit 110 degrees that is four degrees above their records for the state and i bring that up because our winds coming out of the south and southwest for the next day or two are actually going to help push some of that warm air into the chicago area, we are not looking at temperatures getting quite that war but we should add maybe two or three degrees to tomorrows high-temperature from what we had today so it humidity will be increasing and that means that he index temperature will make the air field quite a bit warmer, the 91 in chicago and there is the 110 degree temperature down an oklahoma city, winds right now out of the south they're not very strong and we did have a lot of sunshine in the area today and produced some very toasty temperatures across the entire area and in fact up in northwest suburban wheeling today the temperature peaked at 92 degrees. it is still very toasty warm throughout the entire
9:35pm
chicago area, readings in the '80s, but this is probably the bigger part of the store the jet stream pattern is such that the warm air will continue to hold sway over the entire midwest, we will have a little bit of clear that will sneak in on tuesday but all that is going to do is return our temperatures to seasonal norms. do. temperatures are presently in the mid-60's, if you walk outdoors winds are coming out of the south and southwest but they are diminishing relatively rapidly, wind speeds are currently running at 5-10 mi. per hour, not much of a breeze to help dispel any of the heat so we're looking at a fairly warm night. we are expecting those clouds will dissipate
9:36pm
later, this yolo area is in fact an entire region of p advisories', people who live in this section of the country are looking at heat index temperatures tamara of between 1 05-110 degrees at the minimum. because oklahoma city was quite warm that could easily see heat index temperatures approaching 120 degrees. during the afternoon i have noticed a few thunderstorms pop-up in the region, this is from our computer forecast model and you can see that tomorrow evening and early monday you have showers and thunderstorms developing, that could possibly interfere with the forecast for somewhat warmer temperatures later in the day because thunderstorms can mix down with cool air fare at the moment it looks like tomorrow will make it to lease 93 and above 90 on monday as well. the forecast for tonight across the area: skies will be cloudy but we do expect much improvement later, low
9:37pm
temperature by morning 68-73. cooler temperatures should be in the outlying areas. late startstorms are a possibility. monday 88-92 and another 90 is a good possibility, again a scattered storms as possible. we cool off a little bit on tuesday but tuesday and wednesday both have elissa slight chance of seeing the showers and thunderstorms develop. then we see that he return as we head towards next weekend friday back to 90 into '93 expected for saturday so this heat may be with us awhile. >> polo matches and charity
